User's Manual 



General Precautions 



TOSHIBA computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and 
withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be 
observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury, damage to the 
computer or impaired performance. 

Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions 
included in the text of the manual. Please also refer to the Safety 
Instruction Manual. 



Stress injury 



Carefully read the Safety Instruction Manual. It contains information on 
prevention of stress injuries to your hands and wrists that can be caused 
by extensive keyboard use. Chapter 3, Getting Started, also includes 
information on work space design, posture and lighting that can help 
reduce physical stress. 

Heat Warning 

■ Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer 
is used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the 
temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical 
contact with the computer for a long time (if you rest the computer on 
your lap, or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, for example) your 
skin might suffer low-heat injury. 

■ If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact 
with the metal plate supporting the I/O ports. It can become hot. 

■ The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use. This 
condition does not indicate a malfunction. If you need to transport the 
AC adaptor, disconnect it and let it cool before moving it. 

■ Do not lay the AC adaptor on a material that is sensitive to heat. The 
material could be damaged. 

Pressure or impact damage 

Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to strong 
impact. Excessive pressure or impact can cause damage to computer 
components or otherwise cause malfunctions. 

PC card overheating 

Some PC cards can become hot with prolonged use. Overheating of a PC 
card can result in errors or instability in the PC card operation. Also be 
careful when you remove a PC card that has been used for a long time.

Getting Started 



Setting up your work space 

Establishing a comfortable work site is important for you and your 
computer. A poor work environment or stressful work habits can result in 
discomfort or serious injury from repetitive strain to your hands, wrists or 
other joints. Proper ambient conditions should also be maintained for the 
computer's operation. This section discusses the following topics: 

■ General conditions 

■ Placement of the computer and peripheral devices 

■ Seating and posture 

■ Lighting 

■ Work habits 

General conditions 

In general, if you are comfortable, so is your computer, but read the 
following to make sure your work site provides a proper environment. 

■ Make sure there is adequate space around the computer for proper 
ventilation. 

■ Make sure the AC power cord connects to an outlet that is close to 
the computer and easily accessible. 

■ The temperature should be 5 to 35 degrees Centigrade (41 to 
95 degrees Fahrenheit) and the relative humidity should be 20 to 
80 percent. 

■ Avoid areas where rapid or extreme changes in temperature or 
humidity may occur. 

■ Keep the computer free of dust, moisture, and exposure to direct 
sunlight. 

■ Keep the computer away from heat sources, such as electric heaters. 

■ Do not use the computer near liquids or corrosive chemicals. 

■ Do not place the computer near objects that create strong magnetic 
fields (e.g., stereo speakers). 

■ Do not operate the computer in close proximity to a mobile phone. 

■ Leave ample ventilation room for the fan. Do not block the vents. 

Placement of computer 

Position the computer and peripheral devices to provide comfort and 
safety. 

■ Set the computer on a flat surface at a comfortable height and 
distance. The display should be no higher than eye level to avoid eye 
strain.

Getting Started 



■ Place the computer so that it is directly in front of you when you work 
and make sure you have adequate space to easily operate other 
devices. 

■ Allow adequate space behind the computer to let you freely adjust the 
display. The display should be angled to reduce glare and maximize 
visibility. 

■ If you use a paper holder, set it at about the same height and distance 
as the computer. 

Seating and posture 

The height of your chair in relation to the computer and keyboard as well 
as the support it gives your body are primary factors in reducing work 
strain. Refer to the following tips and to the figure below. 



Below eye 
level 




"ANGLES 



3 6 6 6 6 



Posture and positioning of the computer 

Place your chair so that the keyboard is at or slightly below the level of 
your elbow. You should be able to type comfortably with your 
shoulders relaxed. 

Your knees should be slightly higher than your hips. If necessary, use 
a foot rest to raise the level of your knees to ease pressure on the 
back of your thighs. 

Adjust the back of your chair so it supports the lower curve of your 
spine. 

Sit straight so that your knees, hips and elbows form approximately 
90 degree angles when you work. Do not slump forward or lean back 
too far.

Getting Started 

Lighting 

Proper lighting can improve legibility of the display and reduce eye strain. 

■ Position the computer so that sunlight or bright indoor lighting does 
not reflect off the screen. Use tinted windows, shades or other screen 
to eliminate sun glare. 

■ Avoid placing the computer in front of bright light that could shine 
directly in your eyes. 

■ If possible, use soft, indirect lighting in your computer work area. Use 
a lamp to illuminate your documents or desk, but be sure to position 
the lamp so that it does not reflect off the display or shine in your 
eyes. 

Work habits 

A key to avoiding discomfort or injury from repetitive strain is to vary your 
activities. If possible, schedule a variety of tasks into your work day. If you 
must spend long periods at the computer, finding ways to break up the 
routine can reduce stress and improve your efficiency. 

■ Sit in a relaxed posture. Good positioning of your chair and equipment 
as described earlier can reduce tension in your shoulders or neck and 
ease back strain. 

■ Vary your posture frequently. 

■ Occasionally stand up and stretch or exercise briefly. 

■ Exercise and stretch your wrists and hands a number of times during 
the day. 

■ Frequently, look away from the computer and focus your eyes on a 
distant object for several seconds, for example 30 seconds every 1 5 
minutes. 

■ Take frequent short breaks instead of one or two long breaks, for 
example, two or three minutes every half hour. 

■ Have your eyes examined regularly and visit a doctor promptly, if you 
suspect you might be suffering from a repetitive strain injury. 

A number of books are available on ergonomics and repetitive strain injury 
or repetitive stress syndrome. For more information on these topics or for 
pointers on exercises for such stress points as hands and wrists, please 
check with your library or book vendor. Also refer to the computer's 
Safety Instruction Manual.

Writing CDs on CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive 



ft 



Depending on the type of drive installed, you may be able to write CDs. 
The CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive lets you write as well as read CD-ROMs. 
Observe the precautions in this section to ensure the best performance 
for writing CDs. For information on loading and unloading CDs refer to the 
Using optical media drive section. 

CD-R discs can be written to only once. CD-RW discs can be rewritten 
many times. 



Before writing or rewriting 

Please observe the following points when you write or rewrite the data. 

■ We recommend the following manufacturers of CD-R and CD-RW 
media. Media quality can affect write or rewrite success rates.

If the disc is poor in quality, dirty or damaged, writing or rewriting 
errors may occur. Be careful to check the disc for dirt or damage 
before you use it. 

The actual number of rewrites to CD-RW or DVD-RW/-RAM is 
affected by the quality of the disc and the way it is used. 

There are two types of DVD discs: authoring and general use discs. 
Do not use authoring discs. Only general use discs can be written to 
by a computer drive. 

You can use DVD-RAM discs that can be removed from a cartridge 
and DVD-RAM discs designed without a cartridge. You cannot use a 
disc with a 2.6 GH single-sided capacity or 5.2 GB double-sided 
capacity.

Operating Basics 



■ In writing to a DVD-R/-RW disc, some disc space is required for file 
management, so you may not be able to write the full capacity of the 
disc. 

■ Since the disc is based on the DVD standard, it will be filled with 
dummy data if the written data is less than about 1 GB. Even if you 
write only a small amount of data, it might take time to fill in the 
dummy data. 

■ DVD-RAM formatted by FAT32 cannot be read in Windows 2000 
without DVD-RAM Driver Software. 

Before writing or rewriting 

Please observe the following points when you write or rewrite data. 

■ When multiple drives that can be written are connected, be careful not 
to write to the wrong drive. 

■ Be sure to connect the AC adaptor before you write or rewrite. 

■ Before you enter standby/hibernation mode, be sure to finish DVD- 
RAM writing. Writing is finished if you can eject DVD-RAM media. 

■ Be sure to close all other software programs except the writing 
software. 

■ Do not run software such as a screen saver, which can put a heavy 
load on the CPU. 

■ Operate the computer in the full-power mode. Do not use power- 
saving features. 

■ Do not write while virus check software is running. Wait for it to finish, 
then disable virus detection programs including any software that 
checks files automatically in the background.

damage. 

■ Write from the computer's HDD to the CD/DVD. Do not try to write 
from shared devices such as a LAN server or any other network 
device. 

■ Writing with software other than Drag'n Drop CD+DVD is not 
recommended. 

When writing or rewriting 

Please observe/consider the following when you write or rewrite to a CD- 
R/-RW or DVD-R/-RW/-RAM disc.

Media care 



This section provides tips on protecting data stored on your CD/DVDs 
and diskettes. 

Handle your media with care. The following simple precautions will 
increase the lifetime of your media and protect the data stored on them: 



CD/DVDs 



1 . Store your CD/DVDs in the container they came in to protect them 
and keep them clean. 

2. Do not bend the CD/DVD. 

3. Do not write on, apply a sticker to, or otherwise mar the surface of 
the CD/DVD that contains data. 

4. Hold the CD/DVD by its outside edge or the edge on the center hole. 
Fingerprints on the surface can prevent the drive from properly 
reading data. 

5. Do not expose to direct sunlight, extreme heat or cold. Do not place 
heavy objects on your CD/DVDs. 

6. If your CD/DVDs become dusty or dirty, wipe them with a clean dry 
cloth. Wipe from the center out, do not wipe in a circular direction 
around the CD/DVD. If necessary, use a cloth dampened in water or 
a neutral cleaner. Do not use benzine, thinner or similar cleaner. 



Diskettes 



1 . Store your diskettes in the container they came in to protect them 
and keep them clean. If a diskette is dirty, do not use cleaning fluid. 
Clean it with a soft damp cloth. 

2. Do not slide back the diskette's protective metal covering or touch 
the diskette's magnetic surface. Fingerprints may prevent the 
diskette drive from reading data from the diskette. 

3. Data may be lost if the diskette is twisted; bent; or exposed to direct 
sunlight, extreme heat or cold. 

4. Do not place heavy objects on your diskettes. 

5. Do not eat, smoke, or use erasers near your diskettes. Foreign 
particles inside the diskette's jacket can damage the magnetic 
surface. 

6. Magnetic energy can destroy the data on your diskettes. Keep your 
diskettes away from speakers, radios, television sets and other 
sources of magnetic fields.

Wake-up on LAN does not function on a Wireless LAN. 

Radio links 

You can easily establish links between two or more devices. The link is 
maintained even if the devices are not within line of sight. 

Security 

Two advanced security mechanisms ensure a high level of security: 

1 . Authentication prevents access to critical data and makes it 
impossible to falsify the origin of a message. 

2. Encryption prevents eavesdropping and maintains link privacy. 



Wireless communication switch 

You can enable or disable Wireless LAN functions, with the on/off switch. 
No transmissions are sent or received when the switch is off. Slide the 
switch toward the left of the computer to turn it on and toward the right of 
the computer to turn it off. 



Sef the switch to off in airplanes and hospitals. Check the indicator. It will 
stop glowing when the wireless communication function is off.

Operating Basics 



Cleaning the computer 



To help ensure long, trouble-free operation, keep the computer free of 
dust and use care with liquids around the computer. 

■ Be careful not to spill liquids into the computer. If the computer does 
get wet, turn the power off immediately and let the computer dry 
completely before you turn it on again. 

■ Clean the computer using a slightly damp (with water) cloth. You can 
use glass cleaner on the display. Spray a small amount of cleaner on a 
soft, clean cloth and wipe the screen gently with the cloth. 

Never spray cleaner directly onto the computer or let liquid run into any 
part of it. Never use harsh or caustic chemical products to clean the 
computer. 



Moving the computer 



The computer is designed for rugged durability. However, a few simple 
precautions taken when moving the computer will help ensure trouble- 
free operation. 

■ Make sure all disk activity has ended before moving the computer. 
Check the Disk and Slim Select Bay indicators on the computer. 

■ If a CD/DVD is in the drive, remove it. Also make sure the drawer is 
securely closed. 

■ Turn off the power to the computer. 

■ Disconnect the AC adaptor and all peripherals before moving the

Operating Basics 



Heat dispersal 



® 



To protect from overheating, the CPU has an internal temperature sensor. 
If the computer's internal temperature rises to a certain level, the cooling 
fan is turned on or the processing speed is lowered. You can select 
whether to control the CPU temperature by turning on the fan first, then if 
necessary, lowering the CPU speed. Or, by lowering the CPU speed first, 
then if necessary, turning on the fan. Use the Cooling Method item of the 
Power Save Mode window in TOSHIBA Power Saver. 

Maximum Performance Turn on the fan first, then if necessary, lower the 
CPU processing speed. 

Performance Use a combination of the fan and lowering the CPU 
processing speed. 

Battery optimized Lower the CPU processing speed first, then if 
necessary turn on the fan. 

When the CPU temperature falls to a normal range, the fan is turned off 
and the CPU operation returns to standard speed. 



If the CPU temperature reaches an unacceptably high level with either 
setting, the system automatically shuts down to prevent damage. Data in 
memory will be lost.

Chapter 5 



The Keyboard 



The computer's keyboard layouts are compatible with a 101/102-key 
enhanced keyboard. By pressing some keys in combination, all the 
101/102-key keyboard functions can be executed on the computer. 

The number of keys on your keyboard depends on which country/region's 
keyboard layout your computer is configured with. Keyboards for 
numerous languages are available. 

There are five types of keys: typewriter keys, keypad overlay, function 
keys, soft keys and cursor control keys. 



Typewriter keys 



The typewriter keys, produce the upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, 
punctuation marks, and special symbols that appear on the screen. 

There are some differences, however, between using a typewriter and 
using a computer keyboard: 

■ Letters and numbers produced in computer text vary in width. 
Spaces, which are created by a "space character," may also vary 
depending on line justification and other factors. 

■ The lowercase I (el) and the number 1 (one) are not interchangeable on 
computers as they are on a typewriter. 

■ The uppercase O (oh) and the (zero) are not interchangeable. 

■ The Caps Lock function key locks only the alphabetic characters in 
uppercase while the shift lock on a typewriter places all keys in the 
shifted position. 

■ The Shift keys, the Tab key, and the Bk Sp (backspace) key perform 
the same function as their typewriter counterparts but also have 
special computer functions.

The Keyboard 



F1 ... F12 function keys 



The function keys, not to be confused with Fn, are the 12 keys at the top 
of your keyboard. These keys are dark gray, but function differently from 
the other dark gray keys. 







l F l^ 


Cs 



I'PrtSc III Pause 
I Sys Req I | Break 



F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute 
programmed functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn 
key, keys marked with icons execute specific functions on the computer. 
See the section, Soft keys: Fn key combinations, in this chapter. The 
function executed by individual keys depends on the software you are 
using. 



Soft keys: Fn key combinations 



ft 



The Fn (function) is unique to Toshiba computers and is used in 
combination with other keys to form soft keys. Soft keys are key 
combinations that enable, disable or configure specific features. 

Some software may disable or interfere with soft-key operations. Soft-key 
settings are not restored by the Resume feature. 






Emulating keys on enhanced keyboard 




A 101 -key enhanced keyboard layout 

The keyboard is designed to provide all the features of the 101 -key 
enhanced keyboard, shown in the figure above. The 101/102-key 
enhanced keyboard has a numeric keypad and scroll lock key. It also has 
additional Enter, Ctrl and Alt keys to the right of the main keyboard. 
Since the keyboard is smaller and has fewer keys, some of the enhanced 
keyboard functions must be simulated using two keys instead of one on 
the larger keyboard. 

Your software may require you to use keys that the keyboard does not 
have. Pressing the Fn key and one of the following keys simulates the 
enhanced keyboard's functions.

To ensure that the battery pack maintains its maximum capacity, operate 
the computer on battery power at least once a month until the battery 
pack is fully discharged. Refer to Extending battery life in this chapter for 
procedures. If the computer is continuously operated on AC power, either 
through an AC adaptor or a docking station for an extended period, more 
than a month, the battery may fail to retain a charge. It may not function 
efficiently over the expected life of the battery and the Battery LED may 
not indicate a low-battery condition. 

Secondary battery (option) 

An optional secondary battery can be installed in the Slim Select Bay to 
increase your battery operating time. Note the caution on Resume mode 
in the previous section Main battery. 

The secondary battery pack is a lithium ion battery, which can explode if 
not properly replaced, used, handled or disposed of. Dispose of the 
battery as required by local ordinances or regulations. Use only batteries 
recommended by TOSHIBA as replacements. 



A 



Real time clock battery 

The Real Time Clock (RTC) battery provides power for the internal real

manufacturer. Battery packs have different voltages and terminal 
polarities. Use of an improper battery could cause smoke, fire or 
rupture of the battery pack. 

Never subject a battery pack to heat, such as storage near a heat 
source. Exposure to heat can cause the battery pack to ignite, 
explode or leak caustic liquid and cause death or serious injury. It 
could also fail or malfunction causing data loss. 

Never expose the battery pack to abnormal shock, vibration or 
pressure. The battery pack's internal protective device will fail, 
causing it to overheat, explode, ignite or leak caustic liquids possibly 
resulting in death or serious injury. 

Never let a battery pack become wet. A wet battery pack will 
overheat, ignite or rupture possibly resulting in death or serious 
injury. 



Warning 



1 . Never allow caustic electrolyte fluid leaked from a battery pack to 
contact your eyes, skin or clothing. If caustic electrolyte fluid should 
contact your eyes, immediately wash your eyes with large amounts 
of running water and seek medical attention, to help prevent eye 
damage. It electrolyte fluid should contact your skin immediately 
wash it under running water to prevent rash. If it contacts your 
clothes, promptly remove them to prevent the fluid from contacting 
your skin or eyes. 

2. Immediately turn off the power, disconnect the AC adaptor and 
remove the battery if any of the following events are observed in the 
battery pack: offensive or unusual odor, excessive heat, 
discoloration or deformation. Never use the computer again until it 
has been checked by a TOSHIBA service provider. It might generate 
smoke or fire, or the battery pack might rupture. 

3. Make sure the battery is securely installed in the computer before 
attempting to charge the battery pack. Improper installation could 
generate smoke or fire, or cause the battery pack to rupture. 

4. Keep the battery pack out or reach of infants and children. It can 
cause injury.

Power and Power-Up Modes 

2. Never dispose of battery packs with normal trash. Bring them to 
your TOSHIBA dealer or to another recycling center to save 
resources and prevent environmental damage. Cover the terminals 
with electrical tape to prevent short-circuits, which could cause the 
battery pack to ignite or rupture. 

3. Use only battery packs recommended by TOSHIBA as 
replacements. 

4. Always make sure the battery pack is installed correctly and 
securely. Otherwise, a battery pack could fall out and possibly cause 
injury. 

5. Change the battery pack only in an ambient temperature between 5 
and 35 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the electrolyte solution might 
leak, battery pack performance might deteriorate and the battery life 
might be shortened. 

6. Be sure to monitor the remaining battery power. If the battery pack 
and real time clock battery discharge completely. Standby and 
Suspend will not function and data in memory will be lose. Also, the 
computer might register an incorrect time and date. In this case, 
connect the AC adaptor to recharge the batteries. 

7. Never install or remove the battery pack without first turning off the 
power and disconnecting the AC adaptor. Never remove the battery 
pack while the computer in Suspend or Standby mode. Data will be 
lost. 

Note 

1 . Never remove the battery pack while the Wake-up on LAN function 
is enabled. Data will be lost. Before you remove a battery pack, 
disable the Wake-up on LAN function. 

2. To ensure the battery pack maintains maximum capacity, operate 
the computer on battery power once a week until the battery pack is 
fully discharged. Refer to the section Extending battery life in this 
chapter for procedures. If the computer is continuously operated on 
AC power for an extended period, more than a week, the battery 
might fail to retain a charge. It might not function efficiently over the 
expected life of the battery pack and Battery indicator might not 
indicate a low-battery condition. 

3. After the battery pack is charged, avoid leaving the AC adaptor 
connected and the computer turned off for more than a few hours at 
a time. Continuing to charge a fully-charged battery pack can 
damage the battery. 

Charging the batteries 

When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the Battery indicator 
flashes orange indicating that only a few minutes of battery power remain. 
If you continue to use the computer while the Battery indicator flashes, 
the computer enables Hibernation mode (so you don't lose data) and 
automatically turns off.

The computer enters Hibernate mode only if Hibernation is enabled in two 
places in TOSHIBA Power Saver : the Hibernate window and the battery 
Alarm item of the Alarm window. 



You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged. 

Procedures 

To recharge a battery pack while it is installed in the computer, connect 
the AC adaptor to the DC IN socket and plug the other end into a working 
outlet. 

The Battery indicator glows orange when the battery is being charged. 

Use only the computer connected to an AC power source or the optional 
TOSHIBA Battery charger to charge the battery pack. Do not attempt to 
charge the battery pack with any other charger. 



Time 

The following table shows the approximate time required to fully charge a 
discharged battery. 

Charging time (hours) 

Battery type Power on Power off 

Main battery pack about 3 or longer about 3 

Secondary battery pack about 3 or longer about 3 

RTC battery about 8 Doesn't charge 



ft 



The charging time when the computer is on is affected by ambient 
temperature, the temperature of the computer and how you use the 
computer. If you make heavy use of external devices, for example, the 
battery might scarcely charge at all during operation. Refer also to the 
section Maximizing battery operating time. 



Battery charging notice 

The battery may not charge right away under the following conditions: 

■ The battery is extremely hot or cold. If the battery is extremely hot, it 
might not charge at all. Also, to ensure the battery charges to its full 
capacity, charge the battery at room temperature of 10- to 30-C (50- 
to 88-F). 

■ The battery is nearly completely discharged. Leave the AC adaptor 
connected for a few minutes and the battery should begin charging. 

The Battery indicator may show a rapid decrease in battery operating 
time when you try to charge a battery under the following conditions: 

■ The battery has not been used for a long time.

Power and Power-Up Modes 

■ The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer 
for a long time. 

■ A cool battery is installed in a warm computer. 
In such case, follow the steps below. 

1 . Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the 
power on until the power automatically shuts off. 

2. Plug in the AC adaptor. 

3. Charge the battery until the Battery indicator glows green. 

Repeat the steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal 
capacity. 

Leaving the AC adaptor connected will shorten battery life. At least once a 
month, run the computer on battery power until the battery is fully 
discharged, then recharged the battery. 



ft 



Monitoring battery capacity 

Remaining battery power can be monitored in the Power Save Modes 
window in Power Saver of Windows. 

. Wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer before trying to 
monitor the remaining operating time. The computer needs this time 
to check the battery's remaining capacity and to calculate the 
remaining operating time, based on the current power consumption 

Prate and remaining battery capacity. The actual remaining operating 
time may differ slightly from the calculated time. 

2. With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery's capacity will 
gradually decrease. Therefore, an often used, older battery will not 
operate for as long as a new battery even when both are fully charged. 
In this case, Power Saver Utility will indicate a 100% charge for both 
the old and new battery, but the displayed estimated time remaining 
will be shorter for the older battery. 

Maximizing battery operating time 

A battery's usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a 
single charge. 

How long the charge lasts in a battery depends on: 

■ How you configure the computer, for example, whether you enable 
battery-power saving options. The computer provides a battery save 
mode to conserve battery power. This mode has the following options: 

Processing speed 

Monitor brightness 

System standby 

System Hibernate 

Turn off monitor

■ How much charge the battery contained to begin with. 

How you use optional devices, such as a PC card, to which the 
battery supplies power. 

■ Enabling Resume mode conserves battery power if you are frequently 
turning the computer off and on. 

■ Where you store your programs and data. 

■ Closing the display when you are not using the keyboard saves power. 

■ Operating time decreases at low temperatures. 

■ The condition of the battery terminals. Make sure the battery terminals 
stay clean by wiping them with a clean dry cloth before installing the

To maximize the life of your battery pack: 

■ At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source 
and operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges. 
Before doing so, follow the steps below. 

1 . Turn off the computer's power. 

2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computer's power. If it 
does not turn on go to step 4. 

3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If the 
battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time, continue 
operating until the battery pack is fully discharged. If the battery 
LED flashes or there is some other warning to indicate a low 
battery, go to step 4. 

4. Connect the AC adaptor to the computer and the power cord to a 
power outlet. The DC IN LED should glow green, and the Battery 
LED should glow orange to indicate that the battery pack is being 
charged. If the DC IN indicator does not glow, power is not being 
supplied. Check the connections for the AC adaptor and power 
cord. 

5. Charge the battery pack until the Battery LED glows green.

■ If you have extra battery packs, rotate their use. 

■ If you will not be using the system for an extended period, more than 
one month, remove the battery pack. 

■ Disconnect the AC adaptor when the battery is fully charged. 
Overcharging makes the battery hot and shortens life. 

■ If you are not going to use the computer for more than eight hours, 
disconnect the AC adaptor. 

■ Store spare battery packs in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. 

Replacing the battery pack 

When the battery pack reaches the end of its operating life you will need 
to install a new one. The life of the battery pack is generally about 500 
recharges. If the Battery indicator flashes orange shortly after fully 
recharging the battery, the battery pack needs to be replaced. 

You might also replace a discharged battery pack with a charged spare 
when you are operating your computer away from an AC power source. 
This section explains how to remove and install battery packs. For the 
detail about removing/installing the Slim Select Bay 2nd battery pack, 
refer to Chapter 8, Optional Devices. 

Removing the battery pack 

To replace a discharged battery pack, follow the steps below.

Chapter 9 



Troubleshooting 



TOSHIBA designed the computer for durability. However, should 
problems occur, following the procedures in this chapter can help to 
determine the cause. 

All readers should become familiar with this chapter. Knowing what might 
go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring. 



Problem solving process 

Resolving problems will be much easier if you observe the following 
guidelines: 

■ Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists. Further action 
may result in data loss or damage. You may destroy valuable problem- 
related information that can help solve the problem. 

■ Observe what is happening. Write down what the system is doing and 
what actions you performed immediately before the problem 
occurred. If you have a printer attached, print a copy of the screen 
using PrtSc. 

The questions and procedures offered in this chapter are meant as a 
guide, they are not definitive problem solving techniques. Many problems 
can be solved simply, but a few may require help from your dealer. If you 
find you need to consult your dealer or others, be prepared to describe 
the problem in as much detail as possible. 

Preliminary checklist 

Consider the simplest solution first. The items in this checklist are easy to 
fix and yet can cause what appears to be a serious problem. 

■ Make sure you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the 
computer. This includes your printer and any other external device you 
are using. 

■ Before you attach an external device, turn the computer off. When you 
turn the computer back on it recognizes the new device. 



User's Manual 



I tZcSUU Version | Last Saved on 21.05.2003 10:18 



Troubleshooting 

■ Make sure all options are set properly in the setup program. 

■ Check all cables. Are they correctly and firmly attached? Loose cables 
can cause signal errors. 

■ Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for 
loose pins. 

■ Check that your diskette is correctly inserted and that the diskette's 
write protect tab is correctly set. 

Make notes of your observations and keep them in a permanent error log. 
This will help you describe your problems to your dealer. If a problem 
recurs, the log will help you identify the problem faster. 



Analyzing the problem 

Sometimes the system gives clues that can help you identify why it is 
malfunctioning. Keep the following questions in mind: 

■ Which part of the system is not operating properly: keyboard, diskette 
drives, hard disk drive, printer, display. Each device produces different 
symptoms. 

■ Is the operating system configuration set properly? Check the 
configuration options. 

■ What appears on the display screen? Does it display any messages or 
random characters? Print a copy of the screen if you have a printer 
attached. Look up the messages in the software and operating system 
documentation. Check that all connecting cables are correctly and 
firmly attached. Loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent 
signals. 

■ Do any icons light? Which ones? What color are they? Do they stay on 
or blink? Write down what you see. 

■ Do you hear any beeps? How many? Are they long or short? Are they 
high pitched or low? Is the computer making any unusual noises? 
Write down what you hear. 

Record your observations so you can describe them to your dealer. 



Software 



The problems may be caused by your software 
or diskette. If you cannot load a software 
package, the media (usually a diskette) may be 
damaged or the program might be corrupted. Try 
loading another copy of the software. 

If an error message appears while you are using 
a software package, check the software 
documentation. These documents usually 
include a problem solving section or a summary 
of error messages. 

Next, check any error messages in the OS 
documentation.

Display Controller and Modes 



Display controller 

The display controller interprets software commands into hardware 
commands that turn particular pels on or off. 

The controller is an advanced Video Graphics Array (VGA) that provides 
Super VGA (SVGA) and Extended Graphics Array (XGA) support for the 
internal LCD and external monitors. 

The following model is available: 

■ 14" XGA, 1024 horizontal x 768 vertical pixels 

A high-resolution external monitor connected to the computer can display 
up to 2048 horizontal and 1536 vertical pixels at up to 16M colors. 

The display controller also controls the video mode, which uses industry 
standard rules to govern the screen resolution and the maximum number 
of colors that can be displayed on screen. 

Software written for a given video mode will run on any computer that 
supports the mode. 

The computer's display controller supports all VGA and SVGA modes, the 
most widely used industry standards.

ft 



Always take care of your computer and try to prevent it from being stolen. 
You are the owner of a valuable technical device, which may be highly 
attractive to thieves, so please do not leave it unattended in a public 
place. To further help protect against theft, security cables can be bought 
for use with your notebook when it is being used at home or in the office. 

Make a note of your computer's machine type, model number, and serial 
number, and put it in a safe place. You will find this information on the 
underside of your notebook. Please also keep the receipt of the computer 
you purchased. 

Should your computer be stolen, however, we'll help you try to find it. 
Before contacting Toshiba, please prepare the following information which 
is necessary to uniquely identify your computer: 

■ In which country was your computer stolen? 

■ What type of machine do you have? 

■ What was the model number (PA number)? 

■ What was the serial number (8 digits)? 

■ When was it stolen, i.e. date? 

■ What was the warranty seal number (if available)? 

■ What is your address, phone, and fax number? 

To register the theft, please follow these procedures: 

■ Fill in the Toshiba Theft Registration form (or a copy of it) below. 

■ Attach a copy of your receipt showing where your computer was 
purchased. 

■ Either fax or send the receipt and registration form to the address 
below. 

Your registration will be entered in a database, which is used to track 
Toshiba computers at our service points around Europe.

travel larger distances. 

■ The range of your wireless devices can be affected when the antennas 
are placed near metal surfaces and solid high-density materials. 

■ Range is also affected by "obstacles" in the signal path of the radio 
signals that may either absorb or reflect the radio signal. 

Supported frequency sub-bands 

Subject to the radio regulations that apply in your country/region, your 
Wireless LAN card may support a different set of 5 GHz/2.4 GHz 
channels.

Wireless LAN 

When installing Wireless LAN cards, the channel configuration is 
managed as follows: 

■ For wireless clients that operate in a Wireless LAN Infrastructure, the 
Wireless LAN card will automatically start operation at the channel 
identified by the Wireless LAN Access Point. When roaming between 
different access points the station can dynamically switch to another 
channel if required. 

■ For Wireless LAN cards installed in wireless clients operating in a 
peer-to-peer mode, the card will use the default channel 10. 

■ In a Wireless LAN Access Point, the Wireless LAN card will use the 
factoryset default channel (printed in bold), unless the LAN 
Administrator selected a different channel when configuring the 
Wireless LAN Access Point device.

Glossary 



Radio frequency interference (RFI) shield: A metal shield enclosing the 
printed circuit boards of the printer or computer to prevent radio 
and TV interference. All computer equipment generates radio 
frequency signals. The FCC regulates the amount of signals a 
computing device can allow past its shielding. A Class A device is 
sufficient for office use. Class B provides a more stringent 
classification for home equipment use. TOSHIBA portable 
computers comply with Class B computing device regulations. 

Random Access Memory (RAM): High speed memory within the 
computer circuitry that can be read or written to. 

restart: Resetting a computer without turning it off (also called 'warm 

boot' or 'soft reset'). To restart the computer, press Ctrl + Alt + Del 
while the computer is on. See also boot. 

RCA jack: A single-pin connector that carries composite video signals, 
which include both contrast and color information. See also 
S-video. 

RGB: Red, green, and blue. A device that uses three input signals, each 
activating an electron gun for a primary additive color (red, green, 
and blue) or port for using such a device. See also CRT. 

RJ1 1 : A modular telephone jack. 

ROM: Read Only Memory: A nonvolatile memory chip manufactured to 
contain information that controls the computer's basic operation. 
You cannot access or change information stored in ROM. 

RS-232C: The Electronic Industries Association (EIA) interface standard 
that describes the 25-pin connector interface and control, data, 
and status signals that allow asynchronous communications 
between computers, printers, communications and other 
peripheral devices. 



SCSI: Small Computer System Interface is an industry standard interface 
for connection of a variety of peripheral devices. 

serial: The handling of data bits one after the other. 

serial communications: A communications technique that uses as few 
as two interconnecting wires to send bits one after another. 

serial interface: Refers to a type of information exchange that transmits 
information sequentially, one bit at a time. Contrast: Parallel 
interface. 

serial port: A communications port to which you can connect devices, 
such as a modem, mouse, or serial printer. 

SIO: Serial Input/Output. The electronic methodology used in serial data 
transmission.

soft key: Key combinations that emulate keys on the IBM keyboard, 

change some configuration options, stop program execution, and 
access the numeric keypad overlay. 

software: The set of programs, procedures and related documentation 
associated with a computer system. Specifically refers to 
computer programs that direct and control the computer system's 
activities. See also hardware. 

stop bit: One or more bits of a byte that follow the transmitted character 
or group codes in asynchronous serial communications. 

subpixel: Three elements, one red, one green and blue (RGB), that make 
up a pixel on the color LCD. The computer sets subpixels 
independently, each may emit a different degree of brightness. See 
also pixel. 

S-video: This connection provides separate lines for contrast and color, 
which produces a video image superior to that produced by a 
composite connection. See also RCA jack. 

synchronous: Having a constant time interval between successive bits, 
characters or events. 

system disk: A disk that has been formatted with an operating system. 
For MS-DOS the operating system is contained in two hidden files 
and the COMMAND.COM file. You can boot a computer using a 
system disk. Also called an operating system disk. 



terminal: A typewriter-like keyboard and CRT display screen connected 
to the computer for data input/output.
